I earned my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Midwestern University. During my
training, I have worked with clients across the lifespan, with a focus on children and adolescents.
I have provided psychotherapy and psychological testing services in an array of settings that
include community mental health centers, private practice, and therapeutic day schools.
I have been able to work closely with clients to treat a wide variety of concerns ranging from
mood and developmental disorders, chronic pain, substance abuse, trauma, hoarding, family
stress, academic distress, and academic avoidance.
My goal is to promote a safe and nurturing setting for my clients while fostering a collaborative
approach to identify individualized needs to improve their quality of life. I strive to collaborate
with my clients to develop a strong therapeutic alliance founded on trust and acceptance. I am
passionate about cultivating benevolence and believe in the benefits of a life spent helping
others. Additionally, I value the importance of displaying open-mindedness, flexibility, and
personal integrity. I utilize a therapy lens that integrates evidence-based practices such as
cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and client-centered
I am dedicated to provide a safe environment for clients in the LGBTQIA+ community, those
who hold multiple identities and have a diverse cultural background. I strive to support others to
examine how these identities may impact the way they interact with the world around them. I
acknowledge my own identity and biases to monitor the impact they have on treatment. I seek to
recognize these identities and use them to advocate and educate on the pressing topics of
sexuality, gender, and racial injustice that are experienced in and outside our communities.
In my free time, you can find me spending time with my two savannah cats exploring nature or
spending time with friends and family.
